Only 15 sleeps until Christmas morning! With a baby in the house this year, everything is wildly magical and that much more exciting. It's been a pure delight to share the holidays with our Greer girl. And I think if she had her way, the twinkle lights would stay up all year through.
As we've gotten closer to Christmas (and her birthday!) we have had a lot of discussions on what to gift her. We want to be sensible, especially for her age, while also throwing in some novelty fun too. With her birthday only four days before Christmas, and her development growing by leaps in bounds in such short periods lately, we have been talking through items that will span this next year. We didn't want to purchase too many 'baby' items, but we also wanted to get her something that is age-appropriate now. So we're thinking long-term and the present when making those gift decisions.
We found that one great option for gifting a little was through IncrediBundles. You can create your own bundle, which is what we did, where you can mix and match a whole variety of toys, books, baby essentials, and the likes. This would make a great gift for a baby shower, welcome home from the hospital, or just because. And you can personalize it just to your liking.
If you'd rather go with a an option that is already put together, you can pick something for the family of readers; a year supply of diapers (that mom and dad can choose the brand and size they want, when they want); a sleep, bath, or organic bundle; or by age range. There are really a ton of bundles to pick from, even one just for dads! And if you feel like you can't make the decision, but love the idea of a bundle, there is always the option of a gift card!
So what did we get for Greer? We opted for a variety of board books, some wooden toys, stacking blocks and cups, a mini orchestra set, and a Sleep Sheep. She has a fierce love for reading and handling books. If only you could hear her read. But, really, this girl has a whole different babble for flipping through a book verses just talking with us. It's the cutest thing I've ever heard.
The stacking blocks and cups are helping to enhance her fine motor skills, and the mini orchestra is for her music-loving heart. This girl loves to dance to any music, and she has more fun with the jingle bells than you can imagine. The glee is palpable. As for the Sleep Sheep on the Go, it has been a huge lifesaver while traveling this holiday season. We can't pack up the fan that is always on when we put her to sleep at home, so this sheep with all of its white noise options has been phenomenal!
And why is this sweet girl smiling? Because IncrediBundles is hosting a GIVEAWAY for a $50 giftcard to one lucky reader! The giveaway starts now and closes at midnight on the 16th! I'll announce a randomly drawn winner that following week! This contest is open to US citizens.
